cakes but there's cereals. dari: barbecue sauce. steve: milk. everywhere. >> in july 2018, they'll come out with new labels that give you more information about the added sugars. this is the first time the aha is coming out with the expert recommendations for kids between 2 to 18. for them, it's really important to try to be as strict as possible in following the guidelines. there's a strong correlation that if you have more of these added sugars, you're more to develop obesity, insulin resistance, high blood pressure and perhaps eventually heart disease. so it is important. steve: we grew up in the sugar generation. everything was full calorie soda, sports drinks, candy all day long. it's a habit. it's hard to quit when you get older. >> even for me, i feel like, you know, we were taught to have lots of carbs, that should be the majority of the diet.
and if they substitute more, they may not -- especially for kids under two. the recommendation is they shouldn't have added sugars. since that might be the time you develop your taste for certain things, the thinking is if they don't have exposure to sugars, maybe they won't crave them later in life. dari: that would be very nice. steve: wish i had done that. dari: this is very interesting and eco-friendly. could preserve food better and cut down on waste and we could be seeing it within three years on store shelves. >> it's exciting. we have a lot of problems with malnutrition and starvation and food waste. part of the reason for that is that even though we have a lot of food, it goes bad before you can send it to people because of poor packaging, poor refrigeration. to have packaging that might be better than foil or better than
advantage in terms of treating those issues like malnutrition and in terms of food waste and environmental waste. i think it's very exciting. the packaging is supposed to be made out of casing, which is a milk protein. it's organic. but there might be some critics. for people who are hesitant to have animal products or dairy, if you're allergic to dairy or lactose intolerant, there might be an issue. you might have some resistance from people where the packaging from food going bad, but just a mechanical barrier. people put their hands in and touch everything. most of this -- i still think it's a great thing. when they stock the shelves, the idea is to have it in cardboard or packaging for the larger containers. if people in your family are reaching into the fridge and grabbing different things, you might not -- steve: got you. dari: so true. steve: cutting down food waste
